MSI Afterburner Not Working

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I apologize ahead of time for being noobish, but my buddy built my comp for me, so I'm a little ignorant on some things. My MSI Afterburner has all the slides set to 0 and cannot be adjusted; I also have voltage control and voltage monitoring selected in the settings menu, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. So now, my games run on a significantly lower quality setting and lag; I have no idea what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you restart your PC after installing MSI afterburner?. It may not be detecting your video card correctly ( even though it says the name up top )

Edit : Though it was a fresh install of after burner sorry :S

Well, I've had my PC for a little over a year now and this is the first time I've had this issue since we built it.

I know this is a stupid question, but did you install the drivers from AMD.com?

You need the dll files, and ya have to put them in the right place. AMD removed volt control by removing those dll's. You simply just add them back in.
